The main parachute “Accurate”

The main Accurate parachute is a 7-section canopy, of a classic rectangular shape, designed for jumping on landing accuracy.

The prototype for the creation of this dome was the famous dome “ParaFoil”. Manufacturers tried to make as few changes as possible to the design and technology of this dome. All changes are mainly related to the disclosure of the dome, without affecting the flight characteristics. Materials and technology for sewing domes are as close as possible to the original. Changes made to the adjustment of the slings were proposed by the Russian national team in classical parachuting and the national team of the Russian Ministry of Emergencies.

The design of the Accurate parachute, which includes a canopy, slings, a corrugation device (slider) and connectors, provides the following tactical and technical data:

reliable operation at altitudes up to 4000 m when performing jumps from aircraft at an instrumental flight speed of 39 to 62.5 m / s (140 – 225 km / h) both with immediate effect and with any delay in opening the parachute;
the minimum safe altitude for the use of Accurate with immediate deployment of a parachute at a flight speed of a horizontally flying aircraft of 39 m / s (140 km / h) – 400 m;
overloads that occur when filling the parachute – no more than 10 units;
safety of landing in the wind near the ground up to 12 m / s with the parachutist entering the target against the wind;
turn on 3600 when retracting one of the control lines for up to 6 seconds;
operability at a temperature from minus 40 ° C to plus 40 ° C.
Warranty period – 500 applications.
Assigned resource – 1000 applications, then – according to the decision of the developer.
The life of parachutes and satchels manufactured by Paraavis is 20 years with a technical check of 10 and 15 years.
